With the integration of IP and optical technology, a high-speed optical network (of the order of 10Gbps) has emerged to support international research cooperation such as massive scientific data transfer and next generation Internet related research. Therefore, it is critical to explore the issues of measurement and evaluation on the performance of transport protocols over 10 Gbps high-speed optical networks. To the best of the authors' knowledge, this is the first work that presents a measurement study on a variety of networking environments.
